2 Kinds of Work Praise

2 Kinds of Work Praise

  1. WE-STRENGTH - This is the type of praise where the entire team is elevated and pushed forward.
  2. ME-STRENGTH - This is the type of praise wherein it makes an individual employee stronger. It is where the person is most comfortable, joyous, and focused on work that brings them satisfaction.

However, it is important to keep in mind that every employee has different strengths where their we-strength could be intrinsically different from their me-strength.

Addressing The Gap Between Me-Strengths

  1. It is important for a manager to be able to gain clarity in each employee's me-strengths. This can be done simply through observation and asking the right questions.
  2. The employees' responsibilities must have room to be exercised regularly. The space given to them will provide positive long-term results and increase employee satisfaction.

When we celebrate our employee's strengths they will feel valued and special, thus making them much more willing to exercise that strength again in the future.

Identifying Me-Strengths

In order to identify your employee's me-strengths, ask them:

  1. What do you enjoy doing but haven't done yet?
  2. What sorts of activities do you finish that make you want to do it again?
  3. What do you see on your calendar that excites you?
  4. Tell me about a time when you were doing an activity where you didn't notice how much time has passed.
  5. On your very best workday, the day you think you have the best job in the world — what transpired that day?

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
